Congrats! You're at the last step for publishing your Hatch role - filming the role video.ย 

1. Why a Team Intro video important to add to your role?

We include a Team Intro video for a few key reasons:

  1. Firstly, having a Team Intro video on your role attracts more candidates who are of a higher quality!

  2. It helps candidates understand team fit - giving them a feel for what it would be like to work with you and your team.ย 

  3. This helps to humanise the role application experience. Candidates also complete a video as part of their application, and together the videos create a connection earlier.

2. What to address

The four key questions that candidates are most interested in being addressed according to our data are as below:

  1. The problem/s the team is trying to solve or is focused on over the next 6-12 months

  2. 1-2 unique aspects of the team culture and working style. They may find it helpful to describe what you allocated the most points in the Team culture quiz during the role setup

  3. What is the purpose of the team in the border business, and how is the team structured?

  4. If a Team Member (Peer) - What they have learned while in the role and how they believe they've developed. Essentially what are the development opportunities being a part of the team offers?


โ€‹3. How to record and upload your Team Intro video

  • Turn a light on behind your laptop (not behind you!) so it's not too dark

  • Raise your laptop so that it's about equal to your hairline and angle the screen so that you are face on but can still see the office in the background

  • Film the video!

  • Log into the Hatch site on your computer and click into your role

  • Under "Your team" click on "Team profile"

  • Click the Upload button and select your video!

4. Tips

  1. Don't worry about it being perfect, it should feel informal and authentic, and give students a good idea of what you are like to work with

  2. Have some office action going on in the background (making sure it's not too loud - your voice should be clear to hear)

  3. The video should last for around 1 minute

  4. Make sure the video is recording landscape

  5. Try to look at the lens, rather than yourself ;)ย 

5. Examples of role videos

Here are a few examples of role videos that did a great job of attracting the role they needed using what worked for their specific organisation.
